Local Eats: The Cambridge Street Kitchen
Just a hop skip and a jump from Nicky’s London studio on Moreton Street is this beauty of a spot, The Cambridge Street Kitchen. Our studio’s absolute go-to location for a morning coffee, press appointment, or team brainstorm. Plus the food is just delicious.
Once a Victorian pub, The Cambridge Street Kitchen is a revived social hub, tucked away in the side streets of Pimlico. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the place comes alive at night in their cosy club room and Ping-pong rooms in the basement. The Clarendon Cocktail Cellar in the basement is worth a visit alone!
We popped by recently for lunch, the place was packed with locals. The open kitchen allows you to take a peek at the dishes being served before you make your choice, we couldn’t resist the risotto and fishcakes this time. A break from our usual tradition on avocado on toast. The restaurant is of course seasonal, and there is a plate for everyone.
Think sirloin served with pink furs, purple sprouting, malted shiitakes and smoked anchovy butter, butternut squash risotto with amoretti, pine nuts and sage, the chicken caesar looked magnificent, we’ll save that one for another day.
Head downstairs for cosy corners, snuggle in with your laptop, grab the papers or just relax and take it all in. This is the closest you’ll get to a Soho House without the hoards of table hogging freelancers.
The hotel is also connected to the Artists Residence group of hotels, with out posts in Cornwall and Brighton. You’ll certainly feel that you’ve come across a hidden gem when you check in here.
The hotel scooped the “London Hotel Of The Year” Cesar Award 2016 by the Good Hotel Guide. Listed with Mr & Mrs Smith and iEscape Hotels it has all the accreditations you’ll need. A 10 bed boutique hotel with cool cocktail bar and all-day restaurant. Staycation anyone?
The Cambridge Street Kitchen is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch & dinner.
